Every time I hear that lonesome train
Roll down the track
Going away to unknown destinations

I believe there's someone out there
Making the great escape, just moving on
Suddenly gone and so unexpectedly

It might hit you on a sunny afternoon
Without a warning there's a thought
It just comes over you

And it's a shadow on a sidewalk
Someone like you
In a blink of an eye, waving goodbye
It's time you made your getaway

In a suburb somewhere
Someone's quietly planning their getaway
Traveling light, in case they might
Get a change of heart

It's the bravest move they'll ever make
But they have to make the break
That's the risk that they take
So don't hesitate, then so unexpectedly

It might hit you on a sunny afternoon
Without a warning there's a thought
It just comes over you

And it's a shadow on the sidewalk
Someone you knew
It's time you made your getaway

It might hit you on a sunny afternoon
Without a warning there's a thought
It just comes over you

And it's a shadow on the sidewalk
Someone like you
It's time you made your getaway

You'll make the great escape
Get out that door before it's too late
Hear that lonesome train
The lonesome train
